For nearly 12 years, the Montpellier Business School Foundation for Equal Opportunities, under the auspices of the “Fondation de France”, has raised funds to support Montpellier Business School’s social policy. Thanks to sponsors and donor companies, more than 400 students were able to benefit from aid totalling more than 15 million euros.
Helping each student to achieve success regardless of his family and financial situation
The Scholarship Ceremony will take place at Montpellier Business School on November 21st. This event celebrates the skills, academic level and overall potential of students through the award of:
- Excellence scholarships, which cover the full cost of training for designated students on social and academic criteria.
- International scholarships of excellence that include training costs and living expenses for students recruited in developing countries, with the help of French embassies abroad.
- Employee Scholarship for which all Montpellier Business School employees are mobilized.
- The first alumni scholarship announced at the Di-Day Meet your Network on April 12th.
Other scholarships are also awarded annually to apprentices: these are App’titude scholarships, which supplement apprentices’ remuneration in order to ensure the unforeseen events related to the pace of training.
The Foundation also supports and encourages entrepreneurship with the Young Innovative and Responsible Business Award for young entrepreneurs, students or graduates for less than three years. It evaluates the financial realism, the quality of the business plan, the innovative character and the contribution to the defence of the values of openness, responsibility and overall performance of the project. In 2019, Valentin and Pia won the € 10 000 to finance their start-up. Discover their story here.
A Foundation fully dedicated to equal opportunities
The specificity of the Montpellier Business School Foundation lies in the fact that 100% of donations are reinvested in actions related to equal opportunities. This is the purpose of the Montpellier Business School Foundation for Equal Opportunities: to fund various schemes to help students socially and financially.
The actions of the Montpellier Business School Foundation for Equal Opportunities are therefore not limited to scholarships. To find out more about all the schemes funded by the Foundation, click here.
